I upped my long run by a mile and finished with 11 miles @ 8:08 average. I’m convinced that running with friends makes increasing your long-run mileage a million times easier because they keep me so distracted.
Only one mile on the dirt and the rest on the roads but plenty of hills for 900 ft of climbing.
This is the elevation chart for my 25k coming up and it is a bit intimidating (even though I’ve done the course before)!
Curly still does the babysitting if she can when Andrew is gone in the morning. My kids adore her and she and Skye love to make sure they have matching hairstyles while I am away.
My niece also loves to style me and the kids when she is over.
A highlight of our weekend was Brooke’s indoor soccer game. She scored an amazing goal and felt like a million bucks having her dad there too!
She also won the sportsmanship award (which they have made into quite a nice advertising tool since it goes in your front yard for the week;).
We also got to hang out with my friend Allyson!
Skye was in heaven with her girls (she misses Brooke so much when she is gone so it was just what she needed) and Beck just loved the toddler foam pit.
A few Monday Matters before I let you go:)
*Well, now I need to sign up for Houston 2023! Sara Hall broke the American record in the 1/2 with a time of 67:15 and Keira D’Amato is the new American Marathon Record holder with a time of 2:19:12. What an exciting day!
*So many miles were completed with this little iPod of mine that I adored. I wish it still worked.
*My friend Jenn (she has five kids) had the best dinner idea! I am so trying this.
*Megan D gave me these sour gummy lips and they made me remember that I could survive completely off of gummy candy if needed.
*Andrew and I both went to Target in the same week and both came home with the exact same jacket for Beck without realizing it… the longer we are together, the more we think alike.
How are you spending Martin Luther King Jr day today?
